Description

Oh Snap is a turn-based, collaborative guessing game where players draw on top of photos to convey words to their friends. Players are paired up and work together to build a streak of consecutive correct answers, revealing more difficult words as they level up. With each correct answer, both players earn coins that can be used to unlock additional colors, picture frames, and lightning bolts (hints). The resulting photos and drawings are truly works of art in many cases, and can be downright hilarious in others.

History

Oh Snap launched as part of a limited geo-beta in Canada and New Zealand on August 25th, 2012. It quickly rose to the top 10 charts in the App Store for word games, despite a marketing budget of less than $200 for the geo-beta.

The team at Wubyu has been working hard to make Oh Snap even better based on user feedback. Our newest version is set for global launch in late September. Promo codes are available to the media for early access – please just send a request to nate@wubyu.com.
